Syrian drone intercepted after approaching Israeli airspace

In order to end the war, the Russian and American presidents whom are believed to agree on the failure of the military solution and who think it's time for a "peaceful solution" met in Vietnam to discuss the matter.

"These efforts will continue until the final defeat of Islamic State", according to the statement.

The leaders reaffirmed the importance of de-escalation zones as an interim measure to reduce violence in Syria and called upon all United Nations member states to increase their contributions to meeting humanitarian needs.

Israeli security officials said the drone's operators had deliberately attempted to fly the aircraft across the Israeli border from Syria, but the craft was shot down before it crossed into Israel. The U.S. official said additional agreements with Jordan had strengthened one zone in the south. However, the internationally acceptable positioning, albeit temporary, would mean regional conflict between Iraq, Israel and Turkey, all of which are getting ready for the "post-ceasefire" stage.Recently published satellite maps show that Iran is building a series of small military bases, extending from the southern suburbs of Damascus to the Golan, apart from the military compounds built by Lebanese Hezbollah in its positions in other areas inside Syria.

According to reports, the deal includes Iranian proxies fighting on behalf of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, which would be required to leave the border area and eventually Syria. Israel has also been providing medical treatment to the extremist militants wounded in Syria.

Like the rest of the region's countries, Israel underestimated Iran's infiltration of Syria.

While largely staying on the sidelines of the Syrian war, Israel has carried out repeated airstrikes against suspected weapons shipments to Hezbollah.

"We hold the Syrian regime responsible for any firing or breach of sovereignty and call on it to hold back all players active in its territory", Lieberman said in a statement.

The prime minister said that while the plan aimed to keep Iran 20 kilometers (12 miles) away from the Israeli border, it did not address Iran's plans to cement its presence in Syria, which, he said, included the establishment of a naval and air force bases.
